Hour of Great Mercy

“At three o’clock, implore My Mercy, especially for sinners; and if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in my abandonment at the moment of agony.

This is the hour of great Mercy for the whole world.

I will allow you to enter into my mortal sorrow.

In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of me in virtue of My Passion.”  (Diary of St. Faustina. #1320)

Everyone is invited to join us in the Chapel at 3:00 p.m.

The Hour of Great Mercy, to pray the “3 o’clock Prayer” and the Divine Mercy Chaplet.

We have the prayers in the Chapel EVERYDAY, Monday to Saturday at 3:00 p.m.    Come and join us in prayer!
